Well executed shot Rod,
Good strong foreground interest sits well within the landscape.
Maybe a polariser would have brought out the sky and grass colours a little more but other than that I can't fault it

Thanks Jeff - in the old days of my Praktica manual SLR, I had skylight 1B filters on all my lenses - is that the type of thing you're referring to?

Ive never really been a fan of critique threads, mainly because an image is either judged for it's photographic merit and because one persons "WOW" is another persons "UGGHH"....so the only way to judge an image properly is to say yay or nay to the composition and use of the rules.

Personally...rules are meant to be broken

That said, i'll join in for the craic!

Okay, those who are on Facebook may have seen me post these two from the weekend:

Both shot using very high ISO, I think the first one was about 800ISO and the second was 3200ISO.

Filter yes but polariser is a bit different to a uv or skylight filter

Brilliant shots Alan,
Did you clean them up with noise Ninja or is that just the level of control your camera body has at high iso's, if so
Nothing to critique that I can see, beautifully composed and great use of the available light

Jeff, coming from the old 20D, 30D,40D, 50D stable I was apprehensive at the 'downgrade' to a XXXD model but i've been blown away by the level of detail with this sensor. The above were JPEG too.
Just checked the EXIF, the first pic was 1/30th @f5.6 and ISO640
The second pic is 1/100th @f4 and ISO3200.
I have reduced noise in CS5 but not too much as it removes detail too and softens it like Guassain Blur.

You can see the noise present in the blues of the ceiling.

I agree that one mans meat is another mans poison.
Thought it may help with some peeps just starting out though, give them some tips and hints to pursue their hobby further

Patiently waiting for the 7D mk2 or equivalent to land and if it deals with noise as well as your body at high iso's I'll be in heaven

Upgrading to the 7D replacement may well be a trade off....as you could go for a 5D MkII for similar cash and the FF pixels are lovely to work with.
